New tag.



I'm certain that with a tiny bit of searching even a white belt in googlefu can find the tag with the clues in the pic.

Found it pretty quickly....
It's a couple hours each way and I'm not going to have the opportunity until after the weekend. As centrally located as it is... I'd expect T6D or RidingDonkeys to be all over it pretty quickly.

Dangit, Fish! I've been sitting on a file tag of that since last summer!

It was a little dark by the time I got there though. It was at the end of a 400 mile day. Of course, I'm about 250 miles from it right now.

NOT THE GRAB!

I'm setting at the Pik-N-Pig this very minute. Just finished a small pulled pork plate and a nanner pudding. You can make it if you hurry!

Hurry and go get it, then stop by Pik-N-Pig in Carthage for dinner. I would have done a review for the BBQ thread but I was too hungry for pictures.

I'm stuck in Disgusta, GA right now. BBQ sounds good. I should go find some.

Fear not, the tag will not last long in this spot. At the latest it will be gone by Thursday. If I was paying attention I would have grab it on my way home from the global multi grab tag at the nuke plant. It was half a block off my route. Darn!

I've been patiently waiting for WCU football season to poach this.
Good grab&drop. Fish. Was working on the base all day today on Lamont rd. I'm removing ladders and tools from my service van and installing a ramp for my dr. Couldda grabbed it on my way home. Damn!

The flatlanders will come up to the hills and grab a tag and take it to BFE on the coast where it'll lay until it rots and stinks like a washed up fish carcass. Then a flatlander will rescue it and it will eventually make it back into the hills and then the process will start all over again. Most of us hillbillies are too afraid to come down out of the hills to get a tag so we really are at the mercy of a kind hearted flatlander who will bring the tag back into the hills for us. Sometimes we have to wait a coon's age before that happens and that is why we don't place tags where flatlanders can easily bushwack 'em. Welcome to NC.
some of us will go for a flatlander tag if time allows

watching and waiting until I gets home again, 10 more wake-ups then another day still flying and another day to ... sleep
packing my stuff and moving back to the hills no later than Aug 19

then watch the yeller tigger go

Well, now you've seen part of my daily commute.

You all have fun with the tag. My riding may be done for the summer. I have a compressed ulnar nerve in my right arm. I am soon to have transposition surgery to decompress the nerve and hopefully get rid of the tingling/pain in my right arm/hand.

I have a new seat coming for the V Strom to make it a bit more comfy. Maybe by the time I am cleared to ride again I'll have cruise and hand warmers installed. I'll be ready for a long ride when that is done.

Happy tagging!
